Heinsohn: Sullinger a 'new Leon Powe'

Jared Sullinger plays a major role in his first game with the Celtics, chipping in 16 points.

His ability to come off the bench offers the C's a big weapon.

Tommy Heinsohn sees Sullinger as someone in the mold of Leon Powe - someone who can come off the bench and affect the flow and outcome of the game.
